It’s been a rollercoaster ride here at The Art Hand over the last few weeks. The recent Words Bash was an overwhelming success with record attendance for our 1 year birthday celebration of the performance night. The next Words event is on August 6th at 7.45pm. Plans are also under way to create a themed open air event called Wild Words which will take place during the Comeragh Wild Festival in September.
Sean Corcoran was the artistic director of The Promenade Festival that entertained over 30,000 people all around the town of Tramore. 8 international artists and over 40 Irish artists and performers took part. Plans are already underway for an even bigger show next year. Thank you all for taking part, picture shows a thank you note from sand artist Andy Coutanche. Miranda Corcoran and Ann McGrath facilitated the creation of a colourful circular mosaic at the festival with the help of hundreds of members of the public. Would you like to be part of the finishing team by helping Miranda put the finishing touches to it? Learn a new skill and it’s free! The completed artwork will be permanently displayed in the new National Training Centre for Beach Guards in Tramore.
The Saturday Art Club for adults has started under the guidance of Sean and Miranda Corcoran. An exciting art project every fortnight from 11am to 2pm with lunch included. A Stained Glass weekend course with Sean Corcoran starts on July 18th. Design and make your own piece of colourful glass to hang in your home. We are taking bookings from small groups for Environmental Art and Art Parties. For further details on any of these projects please check our website, Facebook page or ring 051 292919.
